Tabletop Chalkboard Easel

Submitted by spiceylg on Thu, 10/17/2013 - 01:47

First project for upcoming annual craft show. Guessed on cost as we bought 2x6s and 2x12s on clearance and ripped them down ourselves for a cost savings. Used beadboard for the chalkboard because I got a slightly damaged 4'x8' sheet for just $3.95. Have to say that it's not the smoothest so I'd definitely go with something like luann next time. Still cute!

That last picture shows the second batch I made for the following year. I modified the plan to simplify it for me and use less materials by making it just one-sided.

Estimated Cost
Type of Wood
Pine and beadboard
Finish Used
Olympic paint (not a huge fan). Sorry don't have color names. Purple color from oops paint at Lowes, Valspar, I believe.
